As Chennai Super Kings defeated Delhi Capitals by six wickets in Qualifier 2 at Vizag, Rishabh Pant and Suresh Raina showcased the spirit of the game as the senior southpaw Raina tied the shoelaces of wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant while the latter was batting during Delhi Capitals' innings.

The gesture was praised fans on social media as it again proved that cricket is gentleman's sport. Some even shared the duo's bond on the cricket field.

Pant's 38 off 25 ball brought some respectability to Delhi's total as they managed to score 147 for nine.
